Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Is this supposed to be a joke? I don't get it... But it reminds me of the poem about as soon as we take our first breath, we begin to die... Scary, but true.

Probably just more fearmongering from the "scientific" community that will be used to try to push through more environmental legislation.

Hi Knotical, I remember being in a Gallery/Bookstore in Carmel by the Sea that featured Ansel Adam's work (this was back in 1993, if memory serves). I'd only been a Christian for about 7 years then and I listened, in horror, at the conversation that was going on between a large group of people there as they openly discussed this very topic and our need to do something about it. Their answers (to help slow the earth's inevitable destruction) centered around our need to increase awareness and encouragement for things like birth control, abortion, sterilization/mandatory population control, euthanasia, and destigmatizing the gay lifestyle (thus my reaction to their conversation).

 

Much of what they thought would help reduce the size of the human "infestation" here on planet earth has come to pass, but the results they hoped for have not ;)

Well this is not really the thing that I like to see to start my day, but yet again I cannot say that I am too surprised. We continue to go and use up these resources without real regard to the effects of it and where we are going to get them when they run out, or what will happen when they run out. It is certainly disturbing that this date is coming earlier and earlier every year, but it is a good little measuring stick for us as a species. If we can effectively work to go the other way, and have this day get later and later, that will be real progress. Until I see that, though, I am sure this current, less optimistic, trend will continue.

Well, there are many roumors which say that earth was given to us to make a new earth out from it, I do believe that human beings have been abusing of the whole planet like a lot, we're messing it up every single day more, people are not concious these days and I am aware of it, this is basically something we can not avoid and which will never happen, today's society is mostly worried about the new iPhone 7 or probably about the new car that is going to be released the next month and whatnot, the point is people do not really care about the planet nowadays, it's something that's completely out of our hands, we have to let god decide, that's my opinion though.

You know the article is a joke when China and India weren't at the top of that list. I get that everyone wants to make America the bad guy but there is no way we are out eating those two countries. It's not even taking into consideration how much China has already bought in supplies from steel to concrete to continue building for all their growing population. As for not making enough food, this is a lie, we grow enough calories to feed the world and have some left to rot in silos around the United States. This is ignorant fear mongering that politicians are using to manipulate the public.

    • Why people do not believe in Christ

      Jesus in John  5 explains why. It is because His word does not dwell in them, for He has not given them to know God and Christ by making them born of God. John 5::21 "For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will." Luke 10:22 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.”   and so then v40, they refuse to come to Christ so that they might have life. People in their natural state refuse Christ. The natural state is not of the Father, as they have not been born of God, they are alive only in their flesh.  Flesh gives life to flesh and Spirit to spirit. John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’    And they can not be saved as they do not seek the glory that comes from the one true God, meaning they really don't care or want anything to do with Christ. No one wants anything to do with Christ, unless they are first born of God.     36 “I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the works that the Father has given me to finish—the very works that I am doing—testify that the Father has sent me.  37 And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form,  38 nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent.  39 You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me to have life.   41 “I do not accept glory from human beings, 42 but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.  43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.  44 How can you believe since you accept glory from one another but do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? 45 “But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set.  46 If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.  47 But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?

    • Is Reddit a bad forum site for religious people to be at?

      Hi. my names Dennis from sweden and im new to this forum. Since i turned 14, i considered myself as a christian. although i would say im more of a agnostic theist than a gnostic theist since im not 100%.     I've heard from a guy some years ago that big forums like reddit are bad for religious people because everyone there are hostile towards religion while religious people are a minority.    I dont know anything about reddit apart thats its a regular forum where you can talk about anything, similar to the swedish forum Flashback but is it true that Reddit are dominated by antitheists?   Im been exposed to antitheism by watching some of their videos on youtube like some guy named darkmatter or something that ends up insulting any religious people by classifying them as stupid or delusional, it sickens me how their subs applause them for it and it disgusts me just like any other intolerant movements.   Is there any religious people who can share their experience with reddit?
